Japanese Samurai Armor Exhibit for Homeschooling Field Trip

Oliver and I had a Friday field trip this week to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art where we visited an exhibit called Samurai: Japanese Armor. We had studied the samurai last spring in our world history book, so it was a nice complement to what we'd learned. Whether you're into Japanese warriors or not, and I'm actually not, the whole thing was spectacular. Those guys knew how to dress, and the artistry was fantastic. The fact that these elaborate costumes on both man and horse are from as early as the 14th century made the whole thing thrilling.

Reader, what did you do today?


  1. This post reminds me of how transfixed I was by Japanese culture when little. Both Chinese (kung fu) and Japanese (samurais) cultures were part of that beautiful stage in my life called childhood. Thanks.

    Greetings from London.

  2. I bet they were terrifying when they charged up on one of those horses!
